IT Security

If your business is like mine, we have more employees working from home than ever before. 

Although we have discovered that we are able to continue operating effectively, we have greater awareness of the increased risks that go along with the transition to home offices. 

Weaker security measures are a natural risk, and phishing scams have only continued to increase. 

Business owners should pro-actively engage employees to make all aware of the associated risks, encourage “thinking” before clicking links or downloading content, and continue reinforcing a safe IT environment.

Now may be the time to increase your security measures by outsourcing a portion of your IT support function

This may lay the right foundations for your business to mitigate your risk, protect the organization against actions by employees, and help build the platform and discipline to push your business forward.  

First to Press

In each of your current business relationships, it is important to pro-actively provide real-time forward looking communications to owners, investors, management, employees, key vendors, banks, and professional advisors. 

The success of your business directly impacts the livelihood of many other people. 

By partnering with each of your key stakeholders and communicating status and needs, you create an environment by which there is a shared interest of not just surviving, but increasing your opportunity for growth.

Share your message through multiple communication streams to ensure the right flow of information. 

Communicate changes, needs, and other important updates to get real-time information out more quickly to your decision makers.  

Our Part of Your Solution

All businesses have a need for cash flow analysis and projections. 

Our B&V CFO Advisory solution provides experienced Controllers and support team members with experience in cash flow analysis and establishing best practices. 

Whether supporting your accounting team or serving as your outsourced accounting and finance function, we assess the issues, choose the best solution option available, transition into solving the issue and engage in the process. 

Our experience has shown us that our CFO Advisory services generally represent 60 to 75% of the cost of a fuller sourced, on-site accounting controller’s salary, benefits, and bonus. 

We engage our clients with a highly experienced team at a fraction of the cost of an in-sourced team. 

Our dedicated CFO / Controller, Accounting Manager and support staff is always there to answer questions, provide a structured control environment to protect your assets, and focus on helping you understand and mitigate your financial and operational risk.

If you are a service-based business:

  • In need of financial expertise and guidance,
